The worms were probably fruit worms and they won't overwinter in the soil. It's a good idea to work some compost or other organic matter into the soil prior to planting in the area again. The compost can help loosen the soil and can help build its nutrition so that your next crop can develop a healthy root system. Best wishes with your garden.
